A day out on Magaruque Island in the Bazaruto Archipelago near Vilanculos in Mozambique. This sailboat was moored there making a beautiful picture with the clear seas, blue skies and clouds. from 500px Magaruque Sailing Boat
Oia. Beautiful white buildings, blue seas, fantastic views. And donkeys.
Arrive at Oia by boat and you have two simple choices – ride a donkey to the top of the cliff or take on a vary steep walk up the cliff path.
Here, the donkeys are heading home as the day heads towards sunset. from 500px Oia Donkeys
A little crab coming out of his hole on the beach. As you walk along a secluded beach at low tide little mounds of sand next to a hole seem to be all over the place. Many of these are made by little crabs which have been hiding in their burrows during the higher water. Once the surface sand is dry they pop out and go foarging, always with an eye out for danger. Move too close and they will scurry back into their holes.
The Little Crab was captured on the beach at Vilanculos, Mozambique.
Travelling light (more or less), as we were leaving for an island trip, I had the Canon EOS 60D with the EF 70-300 zoom. These were shot by simply setting the lens at closest focus and moving until the crab was in focus. Hence the short depth of field. All at f/8 1/500 ISO100. These were edited online in Google Photos.

Tenby in Pembrokeshire
Tenby in Pembrokeshire is perhaps my favourite seaside holiday spot in the UK. It’s one of those places where you can choose central accommodation, park the car and walk to the beautiful beaches and some great restaurants. on this particular trip we took a boat across to Caldey Island. On the way we were presented with this picture. Good Memories.
A morning walk on a beautiful beach at Umhlanga Rocks, kwaZuluNatal, South Africa.
It could almost be a desert island. Look closely at the horizon – that’s Durban, with a ship leaving harbour. Nice illusion, but still great to walk along the beach in the morning, all alone, with just the sound of the sea.
On a sunny day in the town of Nerja, in Andalucia on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. The Balcon de Europa, giving a fantastic view of the sea and nearby coastline, is a 19th century monument. Here’s the view along the boulevard looking back towards Nerja.
A Sunset Tenby Street

We found a sunset Tenby street. Sometimes a holiday trip and photography collide. There we were walking down the street looking for a bite of dinner. And there was the sunset. The colours of the sunset complimented the street so well, this was a picture that just had to happen.
For the photography fans, yes it did take a bit of post-processing, but I like the shot anyway.
